Clothing Donations Accepted at St. Margaret Mary Church Collection Bin
With the closure of the St. Pauly's clothing donation drop-off location at First Baptist Church of Westwood on August 11, 2023, community members should be aware of yet another donation collection spot in close proximity, making clothing donation drop-offs possibly as convenient as before.
The Westwood Catholic Conference of St. Vincent de Paul has placed a clothing collection bin in the St. Margaret Mary Church parking lot (next to the shed) located at 845 High Street, according to Ken Foscaldo, member of St. Margaret Mary Church.
Westwood Minute notes that the St. Margaret Mary Church collection point is about a quarter mile away from where the clothing shed was located at First Baptist Church of Westwood. Community members can drop off clothing donations at the St. Mary's collection site, which is a mere six minute walk, or couple minutes drive, from First Baptist.
Mr. Foscaldo notes that only clean clothes can be accepted. Please do not drop off electronics, books, or furniture.
Additionally, First Congregational Church in Norwood, located at 100 Winter Street in Norwood, has a St. Pauly Textile shed in its parking lot, and is another alternative for ensuring that old clothes can be repurposed and used.
